Cherokee County Commission, District 1

Centre, AL 35960
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Commissioner Randy Jones (R-Centre) announces that he has qualified to run for reelection to District 1 on the Cherokee County Commission. Jones has served two terms, and will appear on the Republican primary ballot in March 2020.
“It has been my honor to represent all the people of Cherokee County over the last eight years,” said Jones. “I’m very proud that we have been fiscally conservative with taxpayer dollars, and I have tried my best to help our county do more with less. We have seen our conservative principals under attack in other parts of the country. I’m proud that our values of faith and family still resonate here in Cherokee County.”
Jones noted several multi-year road projects that he is proud of accomplishing during his time in office. Among those projects are the resurfacing of County Road 29 from John’s Grocery to Spring Garden, and County Road 33 from the Calhoun County line to Sanford Spring. “With budget constraints, it often takes several years to complete a major road project,” Jones noted. “I’m pleased to have stayed the course and worked to improve these roads one bite at a time.”
Jones is also proud to have helped secure funding for all of the county volunteer fire departments, law enforcement, non-profit organizations, and Cherokee County schools. Jones has also been a vocal advocate for providing School Resource Officers (SRO’s) for all eight school campuses in the county. “SRO’s are vital for the safety and security of our children and teachers, and I will do everything in my power to help stand up an SRO program in our county,” Jones continued.
Jones concluded by thanking the voters for their confidence in him over the last eight years. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve,” said Jones. “I ask the voters once again for their support as I seek another term on the Commission.”
